I like hibiscus, and this is a hibiscus drink. I can’t find the other flavors. perhaps I over-brewed it?

I was hoping for a bit of pineapple hibiscus tea or maybe pineapple coconut hibiscus tea. Instead it was all delicious juicy and tart hibiscus.

I think I need to order some of this, once my other others I have arrive and I drink some space into my cupboard. Then I can fiddle with the amount and times more.

It is very nice to look at with all the orange peels

Post-Steep Additives: German rock sugar
sweeter, less tart, more delicious

Resteep: 7 minutes was a weak hibiscus pineapple – so close!
gave it a bit longer, orange – pineapple – hibiscus DELICIOUS but still weak, but it shows me the potential of this tea!

Bio

I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).
